I'm Ivy Clarke. Bartender, best friend, and disbeliever in love.And now I'm in over my head, trying to flip a house all by myself.Thanks, HGTV.I'm not too proud to admit I need some help. Too bad the only one who can help me is the same man I want to throw out this house's second-story window. Jackson Gamble and I can't be in the same room together for more than a minute without devolving into a sparring match.Except for that one time…But enough about that. Jackson's looking for forever, and I don't believe in love, remember?Get in. Renovate. Get out. Keep my heart firmly in tact.Because it's much easier to fix up a house than a broken heart.

Full of humor and dripping with delicious tension, Nailed It proves that every heart can be ready for a little rehabilitation, if only you're willing to open it up.


I feel like I’ve been waiting on this book for a long time. I’ve been excited for a book about Ivy since I read 12 Steps to Mr. Right.

I love Ivy. She doesn’t get serious with guys, and she doesn’t do relationships, ever. She’s seen what love can do to people and doesn’t want to feel the heartache and pain that comes along with it.

Jackson could change that all. He’s her best friend’s brother, and when he’s asked by Savannah to help out her BFF during a house renovation, he reluctantly agrees to it.

Jackson and Ivy are hysterical together. Their banter is witty, fun, and filled with innuendo. I loved seeing these two together. Jackson has his own meddling family that’s ready for him to settle down.

I loved everything about this book. I loved the best friend’s brother trope and seeing how they were going to work things out.

Madsen is always a go-to author for me. I know I’m going to get laughs, awkward moments, and connect with her characters.

About Cindi Madsen

Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
